One of the many Manhasset traditions in our district is the annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon Day. In late May, the SCA recognized all teachers, administrators and support staff for everything that they do for our students throughout the year with three luncheons, one in each school. The parents donated delicious salads, entrees, sides and desserts which provided a smorgasbord of items for all to enjoy. It was a “feel-good” day for all as the parents thanked the district on behalf of all of the Manhasset families while simultaneously, the faculty and staff were equally appreciative of the day’s delicacies and kind words.
